Benefits of CBD and Endocrine Diseases

Published

The endocrine system is a collection of glands all over the body that is responsible for the secretion of hormones into the bloodstream. An endocrine disorder happens when this system is no longer able to function properly.

The endocrine system is composed of a set of glands responsible for the production of hormones that play a vital role in the regulation of body signals. These include appetite, sleep, weight, breathing, and even puberty. Almost every aspect of the body has something to do with hormones.

Diseases such as diabetes, Graves’ Disease, and Cushing’s Syndrome are all endocrine disorders. Each of them is a unique disease treated in different ways, but CBD and endocrine diseases have become tangled – one as a remedy for the other – in the recent past.

How endocrine system disorders occur

Endocrine disorders occur when one or more endocrine glands no longer functions properly. If even one gland starts to produce too much or too little of a particular hormone, chances of an endocrine disorder occurring go up. Such a disorder can either be generic, or due to tumors, nodules or lesions inhibit an endocrine gland’s normal functioning.

In diabetes, for example, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin; and in hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. Hyperthyroidism is the opposite of this.

All in all, most endocrine disorders don’t have a specific cure and can last with the patient for years or even their whole lives. If left untreated, they can result in poor quality of life, general body pain, loss of weight, total inability to move, work or function and death.

However, there exist medications and therapies that can be used to manage the symptoms they exhibit. One of the ways these symptoms can be suppressed and managed is through the use of CBD.

CBD and the endocrine system

According to recent studies, CBD has the potential to regulate the endocrine system and manage harmful symptoms exhibited by some endocrine disorders. One case that stands out, in particular, is when the disorder is caused by the presence of a tumor on endocrine glands. CBD and endocrine diseases caused by cancer cells can be inhibited and, possibly have an invasion of prostate tumors prohibited.

There is also some evidence available that suggests CBD has some degree of influence over the production of hormones in some glands in the body, including the thyroid gland. Keep in mind that research into the effect of CBD on the endocrine system is in very preliminary stages, however.

What we are sure of, though, is the effect CBD has when it comes to keeping the symptoms of certain endocrine disorders under control. The most common of these are insomnia and anxiety.

Of all the uses CBD has found in the modern age, the most well-documented is its ability to reduce feelings of anxiety. This is thought to be as a result of its ability to bind directly with CB1 receptors in the brain and affect the production of cortisol and serotonin.

Serotonin is a mood-regulating hormone, whose deficiency is usually manifested via feelings of anxiety and depression. A high level of cortisol also leads to feelings of stress and impending doom, as exhibited by people with anxiety.

Another well-known property of CBD is getting rid of insomnia. Sleep is yet another part of human life thought to be controlled, at least in part, by the endocannabinoid system. This is done via the circadian rhythm, which keeps wakefulness and sleepiness in check. In people with anxiety, this rhythm can be thrown off, making them unable to fall asleep.

On the other hand, another common symptom of endocrine disorders is unsatisfying sleep. REM sleep is the part of sleeping where, if experienced properly, a person feels well-rested. In people with certain endocrine disorders and anxiety, REM sleep may be lacking. A CBD dropper or CBD tincture right before bed is a good way to

How A Simple CBD Tincture with Childs Epilepsy and Seizures

Published

on

With all the attention CBD has been getting in and outside mainstream media, it was only going to be a matter of time before it got some form of recognition by the medical community. Medical professionals had mostly stayed away from forming general opinions of the drug because of a lack of clinical data, and as a consequence, lack of data regarding its effects.

With the approval of Epidiolex for treatment of seizures by the FDA, we are getting closer to formal recognition of the drug as a remedy for a lot more than just pain and inducing appetite.

What are epileptic seizures and how are they treated?

A seizure is a sudden convulsion of the body, normally caused by erratic electrical activity in the brain. This activity can quickly spread and cause uncontrolled physical movements and cause the affected person to lose consciousness. Most anti-seizure drugs work by slowing down nerve activity in the brain.

We don’t currently know any drug that can cure epilepsy, and the best doctors can offer is something to relieve the symptoms. However, current remedies are problematic because they exhibit some serious side-effects.

Common ones include anemia, allergic reactions, suicidal thoughts, and liver failure. Considering it’s a life-long disease, these aren’t symptoms anyone should have to contend with, just so their quality of life is bearable.

CBD oil is a relatively new remedy that has been thrust into the spotlight thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. For which reason, it can provide pain relief, prevent nausea and may even soon be used to develop a drug to slow down the progression of cancer.

How does CBD help with seizures?

Currently, the FDA has approved only one drug that contains CBD for the treatment of diseases. In particular, Epidiolex is used in the treatment of two forms of epilepsy: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) and Dravet syndrome. These are notoriously hard to treat. There do exist drugs that can be used to treat them, but patients often need to take two or more different kinds of them at a time, and even then, are still left to deal with the side-effects.

Furthermore, the body builds up a tolerance to drugs used for epilepsy pretty fast. About two-thirds of patients will respond positively the first few times they use epilepsy medication. They then stop being effective after a while, and we’re still not sure why.

With all the different kinds of medication available, it’s not all that difficult to come across patients with whom none of the available medication works. For these patients, there’s little another choice other than to rely on special diets, implanting of special devices or, more recently, the use of CBD oil.

In most cases, it’s possible to explain away the effectiveness of CBD oil due to its interaction with the endocannabinoid system in ways other drugs don’t.

most anti-seizure medication works either by altering electrical activity in neurons, decreasing excitation; or inhibiting chemical transmission between neurons. However, for some drugs, the mode of action is unknown. CBD is one such drug.

Plausible explanations for the action of CBD on the brain include underlying effects on nerve cells and inhibition of chemical transmission. However, there is no concrete evidence regarding this. Additionally, according to a study carried out in Israel, about a third of patients develop tolerance to CBD within three months of taking it. This calls for increased dosages to maintain efficiency.

Are there any risks to taking CBD?

The good news when it comes to CBD is that it has almost no potential for addiction. Unlike other drugs (mostly opioids) that interact with the central nervous system directly, CBD is instead active on the endocannabinoid system.

Additionally, even major CBD outlets like Greenleaf Farms are quick to point out that despite the deep link between CBD and epileptic seizures, it’s not a cure-all medication. Always consult a doctor before attempting to self-medicate.
